the expenditures, deficits and surpluses, we end up with a net of almost $19 million short. the pending supplementals, both approved and pending before the board of supervisors amount to 6.4 million to the general fund. and then the use of the general re serve of 32.2 million. we are assuming you will need to use all of that reserve in order to balance the budget. and then the deposits to reserves, because of our increases to revenue, amount to 11 million. so, that brings us to a projected fund balance estimate of 174 million. as i mentioned before, 103 million of that was already committed to the year two. and the replenishment of the general re serve that we will be using this year needs to be incorporated in next year's budget, leaving us with a projected surplus of $38 million. so, the next slide provides you with a summary of our major tax revenue in the city and it shows you where the bulk of that surplus 72 million come from. and that is property transfer taxes, about $21 million over the budget as we are taking a look at the cash we've received thus far and estimating how much a

for us in terms of shortfalls. we projected a $5 76 million deficit. i think it's notable, to me it's notable about this table is that this is the -- this year with $129 million shortfall is really the best budget outlook we've had since fiscal 2007 and 2008. and it's -- we have climbed out of a significant hole. the mayor in december gave instructions to departments, asking them to reduce their ongoing general fund support by 3% over the next two years. so, 1-1/2% in each year. it's important to remember that 1-1/2% is only about $19 million. so, department solutionseses will always be a part of how the city balances its budget, but it certainly will not be the only way that we balance our budget. these are just more policy oriented instructions focusing on core functions, minimizing surface impacts. one of the things we're really interested in looking at is how are departments utilizing data to find opportunities for greater efficiency and to democrat on stray the effectiveness of their programs. and then of course to engage with their stakeholders. the last slide is the calendar

've made in our budget deficit projection, we're assuming we will want to have a state reserve so that costs us money those years. we assume that some of the one-time sources that we may have used to balance the budget last year are not available and then we have revenue growth in the general fund. and i have assumed that there will be about $50 million of revenue growth and -- in the first year and 128 million in the second year. on the expenditure side, what you can see is that our costs are growing largely because of personnel related costs. so, this is slide 9. the first line, so, $8.8 million of costs greater than what we -- what you adopted in the budget last year. but recall that the budget we adopted for the second year already had $90 million of wage and benefit growth for our existing employees on the general fund. so, essentially what that means is that in 13-14 it will cost us $100 million to have the same employees that we have this year and the subsequent year it will cost another $100 million. so, $200 million in growth in wage and benefits. and that's largely drive

payoff toward the courthouse construction fund is retired. we will close that deficit. and, so, that deficit will be closed. it's a cumulative amount that is reducing every year and we estimate, i think, in three years that should be cleared. the open space fund will end a year with about $3 million, 3.6 within dt. and a negative 1.1 for central shops. what that means for central shops is unless they reduce their costs, that deficit then will be built into their rates to the departments for maintenance of vehicles in next fiscal year. and then finally some of the large enterprise departments, the airport operating fund has a healthy deficit of about $82 million -- excuse me, a surplus, fund balance of $82 million. mta, 57 million, port 30, and the three funds within the puc, hetch hetchy wastewater and the water operating fund are reported here. so, in summary, the local tax revenue is a primary driver of our net good condition. the five-year financial plan and the nine-month report will further inform the mayor and the board of supervisors of any changes that are anticipated.
